Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pilsner glass.

Look - Pours a cloudy amber with a short white head that quickly dies down to some mild lacing.

Smell - Very mild tones of sourdough bread and not much else. It's a slight but enticing scent.

Taste - Pleasant mildly sweet bready and chocolate notes that I'd expect from a bock.

Feel - Nice medium body with just enough carbonation.

Overall - A decent bock from an American brewery. If I was given this blind, I might have assumed it was a real German beer.

Pours a dark, amber color with almost no head. Carbonation appears to be low in general.

Smells like sweet, caramel malt. Maybe a little spiciness.

Taste is sweet malts with a slight kiss of hop bitterness on the finish. Actually reminds me of an Oktoberfest. The more I drink, the more the spice note comes through.

Mouthfeel is a bit light and the carbonation seems low which, to me, detracts from the overall enjoyment.

I ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would after I poured it. It kind of grew on me the more I drank it. Good beer.

I really like this but it's not my top beer. Really tasty but I guess I'm a beer snob. Still a great beer by all means. Highly reccomended especially if you like hoppy beers.

One of my personal favorites. I've never really been one to say I have a brand, but this is my brand. I love it.

One of my favorite all around brews. My go to to serve to people who aren't super into beer, but love the light bitterness. Get it every time its an option.

Great-tasting, smooth beer that seemed perfect for the fall/winter weather. Enjoyed it on tap at a local restaurant. Pours a nice rich amber color with some mild head and great-looking sheets of lingering lacing. Smells rather faintly of some caramel, spice, hoppiness and a little malt. Taste follows the nose, along with more seasonal spice/clove flavors, caramel, bread and a trace of wood. Smooth, gently rich mouthfeel and good carbonation. A very enjoyable beer and I will definitely try more from this style.
